Prince of Peace

I love this stamp from Unity called Prince of Peace. I can't help but sing "Jesus is the reason we celebrate the season" while I was making this card.

I've embossed the image with copper embossing powder, matted it on choc paper, used some ruffled chocolate ribbon from my stash & copper cord on top of the ribbon. I also used the tree embossing folder on a layer of white to create some texture behind the image.

Tidings of comfort and joy!

I love making Christmas cards for friends and family. Every year I say I'm going to start earlier but never do. Today is December 16th and I'm still working on cards. Here is one of them. Stamp is from set called word play by Stampin Up. I used some discontinued dp with old olive and certainly celery cs. Blue ribbon and silver cord are both from Michaels.

Baby thank you cards

Mason Robert Tensen was born on August 29, 2011.
18.5inches long and 6lbs
My inspiration for our thank you cards came from this card on Trish's blog.

I made about thirty of these using the medallion stamp from Stampin Up, inked it with VersaMark, stamped it off center on various shaded of blue paper and used white embossing powder. Martha Stewart border punch along the right side of blue paper and wrapped co-ordinating blue ribbon around. Tag was created using a spellbinders label, chalk in around the edges and a Thank You stamp in black.
